- Trimethylsilylation of the anomeric hydroxyl groups of tetra-O-benzyl and tetra-O-acetyl galactopyranoses was investigated. Stereoselective formation of β-trimethylsilyl glycoside (β-TMS glycoside) of benzyl protected compound was achieved using N-trimethylsilyl diethylamine. In the course of the investigation of the selective synthesis of TMS galactosides using TMS-imidazole, we observed the formation of an intermediate, which was converted predominantly into α-TMS glycoside after silica gel column chromatography. A reaction of acetylated compound using TMS-trifluoromethanesulfonate–2,6-lutindine selectively yielded α-TMS glycoside.
